CONCORD,  K  H. : 






In  early  life  I  loved  the  society  of  aged  people,  and  com- 
mitted to  writing  many  facts  relating  to  our  family.  After- 
ward, during  a  residence  of  thirty  years  outside  of  my  native 
state,  I  learned  to  value  these  records,  and  enlarged  them  from 
time  to  time. 

The  secretary  of  the  New  England  Historic-Genealogical 
Society,  John  W.  Dean,  Esq.,  suggested  to  me  the  idea  of 
including  in  these  records,  so  far  as  possible,  all  the  known 
descendants  of  our  ancestor,  John  Foulsam  ;  and  I  soon  found 
others  willing  to  aid  in  the  difficult  work  of  collecting  materials 
to  be  published  and  preserved.  To  none  am  I  more  indebted 
than  to  the  collections  of  the  late  Judge  John  Kelley,  published 
in  the  Exeter  News- Letter  from  1S38  to  1S50.  Edward  P. 
Coffin,  Esq.,  late  of  Skowhegan,  Me.,  the  Rev.  Moses  Folsom, 
late  of  Effingham,  deceased,  Charles  Burleigh,  of  Portland, 
author  of  the  Burleigh  Geneatogy,  Joseph  Foster,  of  the  U.  S. 
Navy,  and  many  others,  whose  names  will  be  found  in  the  fol- 
lowing pages,  deserve  the  thanks  of  the  family  for  their  contri- 
butions to  the  work. 

Of  the  imperfections  of  this  work  none  can  be  more  sensible 
than  the  writer  ;  but  after  so  many  years  of  toil,  it  seems  best  to 
offer  the  results  of  his  researches  to  the  family,  who  can  never 
know  the  amount  of  time  and  labor  he  has  spent  on  it. 

The  names  of  many  will  not  be  found  on  these  pages,  because 
they  would  not  take  the  trouble  to  send  me  their  records.  I  do 
not  know  as  they  belong  to  our  family,  although  I  have  found 
none  of  the  name,  except  in  the  Southern  states,  who  can  trace 
their  origin  to  any  other  than  our  ancestor,  John  Folsom^  It 
has  been  impossible  to  fix  all  the  dates  exactly  correct.     Many 


have  been  careless  in  copying  their  records  ;  and  when  records 
differ,  I  have  not  often  any  means  of  correcting  the  errors^  and 
deciding  which  is  the  true  record.  When  I  have  found  evidence 
of  an  error,  I  have  corrected  it. 

Some  will  be  disajDpointed  that  they  and  their  friends  receive 
"no  more  extended  notice  in  this  work.  Had  I  given  full  bio- 
graphical sketches  of  all  the  good  people  named  in  this  volume, 
I  should  have  madej'fz'e  volumes  instead  of  one.  Would  those 
^who  complain  be  willing  to  pay  their  proportion  oi  Jive  times 
the  expense  ?  Besides,  if  they  are  able  and  vv'illing  to  pay  five 
times  what  I  ask  for  this  volume,  the  expense  of  such  a  large 
work  would  put  it  beyond  the  reach  of  hundreds  who  would 
gladly  pay  for  this  volume,  and  highly  value  it.  So  I  have 
ibeen  obliged  to  abridge  many  interesting  sketches  that  I  have 
in  my  possession,  and  have  not  obtained  others  that  I  might 
have  procured. 

It  would  be  interesting  to  trace  back  our  family  into  the  place 
from  which  they  received  their  surname — Folsham — in  Norfolk 
county,  England  ;  but  more  than  one  hundred  years  ago  the 
records  of  that  old  church  and  parish  were  destroyed  by  fire, 
so  that  manv  old  families,  descended  from  citizens  of  that  place, 
are  unable  to  trace  their  ancestry.  Our  ancestors  left  Folsham 
some  centuries  before  John  Folsham  came  to  America. 

After  long  and  perplexing  study  of  the  records  of  families  and 
of  chvnxhes,  of  towns  and  of  counties,  I  have  succeeded  in  trac- 
ing many  of  the  descendants  of  Israel"^  and  Nathaniel^'^  whose 
connection  with  their  ancestors,  we  supposed,  had  been  lost 
beyond  recovery.  Many  of  the  earlier  generations  would  re- 
ceive more  notice,  as  they  really  deserved  ;  but  I  cannot  repro- 
duce the  records  which  have  been  lost. 

It  might  be  interesting  to  some  to  know  the  authorities  upon 
which  I  have  founded  some  of  the  statements  which  are  con- 
tained in  this  book,  and  the  long  and  laborious  processes  by 
which  I  have  reached  the  conclusions  found  on  these  pages  ; 
but  it  would  require  much  more  space  and  labor  to  describe  and 
refer  to  all  these  authorities,  and  to  explaiii  all  the  evidences 
which  have  led  me  to  the  conclusions  that  I  joresent  here.  The 
majority  of  readers,  I  presume,  would  not  read  all  these  par- 
ticulars, or  would  not  thank  me  for  them,  if  they  did. 


The  introduction  was  prepared  by  Rev.  N.  S.  Folsom,  d.  d. 
(now  of  Lawrence,  Mass.),  for  the  article  upon  the  "Folsom 
Family  "  in  The  New  England  Historic-  Genealogical  Reg- 
ister^ in  April,  1S76,  which  was  reprinted  in  a  pamphlet.  I 
much  regret  that  he  has  not  been  able  to  continue  his  valuable 
assistance  in  the  remainder  of  the  work.  In  the  body  of  this 
work  I  make  use  of  the  materials  collected  by  Dr.  Folsom  and 
Judge  Kelly  so  frequently  that  I  do  not  often  use  quotation 
marks  when  I  copy  their  language. 


Exeter,  N.  H.,  September,  18S2. 


BY    REV.   N.    S.    FOLSOM,    D.D.,   LAWRENCE,   MASS. 

On  the  26th  of  April,  163S,  the  ship  ''Diligent,  of  Ipswich," 
Eng.,  of  350  tons  burden,  John  Martin,  master,  set  sail  from 
the  mouth  of  the  Thames  for  Massachusetts  bay,  having  on 
board  nineteen  families  and  six  or  eight  single  persons, — in  all, 
one  hundred  and  thirty-three.  Twelve  of  these  families,  num- 
bering eighty-four  souls,  were  from  old  Hingham — the  rest 
from  the  immediate  vicinity  ;  and  they  had  all  embarked  for 
the  purpose  of  joining  a  colony  settled  in  Hingham,  Mass. 
(1633-37),  consisting  often  families  and  five  single  persons  (in 
all,  forty-nine),  who  had  been  their  friends  and  neighbors  in 
old  Hingham.  Among  those  now  emigrating  were  John  Foul- 
sham,*  of  Hingham,  then  twenty-three  or  twenty-four  years  of 

*  As  to  the  original  derivation  of  the  name  Foulsham,  Hon.  George 
Folsom,  in  one  of  the  MSS.  left  by  him,  says, — "It  arose,  upon  the 
adoption  of  surnames  in  England,  from  the  town  of  Foulsham,  a  village 
in  the  county  of  Norfolk,  England  [six  or  eight  miles  north  of  Hing- 
ham], in  which  county  the  family  was  seated  for  many  centuries,  pos- 
sessing estates  in  fifteen  different  places."  Thus,  John  of  Foulsham 
became  John  Foulsham. 

The  orthography  and  pronunciation  of  the  name  have  varied  in  the 
family  itself,  as  well  as  among  others  writing  and  pronouncing  it._  The 
first  Anglo-American  bearing  the  name  spelt  it  "  Foulsham."  His  son, 
Dea.  John,  wrote  it  "  FuUsom"  in  1709;  and  it  is  signed  "  Foullsam  " 
in  his  last  will — J715.  In  one  instance,  in  the  Hingham  town  records, 
it  is  spelt  "  Fulsham,"  but  always  afterward  "  Foulsham."  In  the  Exe- 
ter records  it  is  uniformly  written  "  Folsom"  from  the  year  1659,  '^^'■''^ 
one  exception  in  i68r,  when  the  town  clerk  wrote  "  Foulshame."  In 
the  records  ot  the  first  parish,  Haverhill,  Mass.,— 1749-64, —it  is  spelt 
"  Foulsham,"  "  Foulsam,"  "  Folsham,*'  and  "  Fulsom,"  on  occasion  of 
the  baptism  of  children  of  '-Josiah  Foulsham."  Originally  it  was  doubt- 
less spelt  "  Foulshame,"  its  etymological  significance  being  the/^w/'j 
home,  or  breeding-place  or  mart.     The  old  syllabic  division  must  have 


age,  and  his  young  wife,  to  whom  he  had  been  married  about  a 
year  and  a  half.  They  were  attended  by  two  servants.  His 
wife's  father  and  mother  (Edward  and  Mary  Clark  Gihnan,  of 
Hingham),  three  younger  brothers  (Edward,  not  quite  twenty- 
one  years  old,  John,  and  Moses),  two  younger  sisters  (Sarah, 
and  Lydia  who  married  Daniel  Gushing — 1645),  and  three 
servants  of  the  family,  were  fellow-passengers.  The  rector  of 
the  parish,  Rev.  Robert  Peck,  with  his  family,  consisting  of 
wife,  two  children,  and  two  servants,  also  formed  part  of  the 
company.  The  immediate  occasion  of  their  departure  seems  to 
have  been  trouble  in  ecclesiastical  matters.  Their  rector,  doubt- 
less with  the  sympathy  and  aid  of  most  of  those  constituting  the 
emigrating  party,   had    pulled  down  the   rails  of  chancel  and 

been  Fouls-hame,  the  final  syllable  becoming  shortened  into  "ham," 
with  the  first  letter  silent,  pronounced  like  21711,  as  may  now  often  be 
noticed  in  words  of  that  termination.  A  further  shortening  appears  in 
1504, — how  extensively  practised  is  uncertain, — in  a  Latin  inscription 
on  a  monumental  stone  in  the  floor  of  the  church  of  Repps,  Norfolk 
county,  which,  translated,  is,  "  Pray  for  the  soul  of  Mr.  Thomas  Fol- 
sham,  Baccalaureate  of  the  Chapel."  (Hist,  of  Norfolk  Co.,  vol.  xi,  p. 
182.)  This  last  mode  of  spelling  appears  on  modern  maps  of  England, 
designating  the  town  ;  but  everywhere  it  is  now  written  Folsoj/i  by  those 
bearing  the  name. 

In  regard  to  the  pronunciation  of  this  word,  it  is  now  generally  pro- 
nounced by  the  family  quite  like  w/iolesojne.  The  writer  has  never 
known  but  one  exception.  And  we  suggest  that  this  is  a  preservation 
of  the  old  way  of  pronouncing  the  name  :  that  in  the  first  syllable, 
"  Fouls,"  the  diphthong  "  ou  "  was  sounded  as  in  "  souls,"  "  poultry," 
&c.  Certain  it  is  that  this  old  spelling — fouls  (or  foules) — of  our  mod- 
ern word  "  fowls  "  occurs  in  Chaucer,  as  in  his  "  House  of  Fame,"  and 
in  his  "  Legend  of  Nine  Good  Women," — 

"As  this  foule,  when  hit,  beheld." 
"  I  hear  the  foules  sing." 

Our  suggestion  is,  moreover,  fully  borne  out  by  similar  phenomena  of 
pronunciation  in  modern  times.  We  hear  "  bowling-alley"  (once  writ- 
ten bouling-aWty,  and  the  sphere  or  ball,  boule)  pronounced  in  two 
ways,  with  the  first  syllable  like  "  ow  "  in  howl  and  in  the  drinking-ves- 
sel  bowl.  "Johnson,  Elphinstone,  and  Perry  declare  for  the  former, — 
i.  e.,  as  in  horvl \  Sheridan,  Scott,  Rennell,  and  Smith  pronounce  it 
\\V&  hole.  Garrick  corrected  Walker  for  pronouncing  it  like  'howl.'" 
(Early  English  Pronun.,  vol.  i.  p.  152.)  Even  the  pronunciation  of 
the  word,  when  written  as  Dea.  John  Folsom  wrote  it,  "  Fullsom,"  has 
authority  in  the  old  pronunciation  of  the  word  "Cowper"  like  that  of 
wound,  a  hurt,  as  now  heard,  with  the  on  as  in  "group,"  or,  possibly, 
nearer  the  sound  of  0-00,  the  sound  of  the  ow  in  "  Cowper,"  as  in  howl, 
being  "  given  it  only  by  those  who  do  not  know  the  family." 


altar,  and  levelled  the  latter  a  foot  below  the  church,  as  it 
remains  to  this  day.  Being  prosecuted  by  Bishop  Wren,  he 
left  the  kingdom,  together  with  his  friends,  who  sold  their  es- 
tates at  half  their  real  value,  promising  to  remain  with  them 

The  party  having  landed  at  Boston.  Mass..  August  lo.  163S, 
immediately  proceeded  to  their  place  of  destination,  about  four- 
teen miles  south-east  from  Boston.  An  Adam  Foulsham.  prob- 
ably a  son  of  the  Adam  who  died  in  1627.  and  a  cousin,  if  not 
brother,  of  John  P'oulsham,  came  from  Hingham,  Eng..  to 
Hingham,  Mass..  in  1639.  but  returned  to  England  and  died — 
1670.  Their  rector  remained  about  three  years,  when,  hearing 
that  the  bishops  were  deposed,  he  returned  to  England  in  1641* 
(the  date  given  by  Daniel  Gushing),  resumed  his  rectorv,  and 
died  in  1656.  Edward  Oilman  had  with  others  obtained  a  grant 
of  land  eight  miles  square  in  a  place  now  called  Rehoboth,  near 
the  Rhode  Island  line,  in  1641.  In  1647  ^^^^  name  is  recorded 
in  Ipswich.  Soon  afterward  he  went  to  Exeter,  N.  H.,  where 
his  sons  were  already  established  in  business.  John  Folsom 
and  wife,  with  their  children,  followed  her  father  and  mother  to 
Exeter,  probably  not  earlier  than  1650,  the  first  authentic  rec- 
ord of  their  residence  in  that  town  being  in  the  year  16^5. 

During  the  twelve  or  fifteen  years'  residence  of  John  Foul- 
sham  in  Hingham,  Mass.,  he  was  not  without  tokens  of  the 
good-will  of  the  people.  He  received,  in  1638,  a  grant  of  land, 
and  soon  built  himself  a  house.  It  is  quoted  from  Daniel  Cush- 
ing's  records  in  Sprague's  Genealogy,"  Appendix,  p.  50,  that 
"  There  was  given  him  by  the  Town  four  acres  of  Land  butting 
upon  the  Playne  eastward  and  upon  the  Gommon  westward  ;  " 
and  the  author  of  the  Genealogy  mentions  that  "  The  house  stand- 
ing upon  this  lot  [182SJ  was  built  by  Foulsham  before  Daniel 
Gushing  was  Town-clerk  [1669] — the  frame  is  of  sawed  oak- 
timber.  My  grandfather,"  the  author  adds,  "bought  it  in 
1744  of  Daniel  Beal — my  father  left  it  in  1800;  the  Spragues 
own  it  at  present."     This  house  was  taken  down   in  1S75.  and 

*  In  Mr.  Blomefield's  "  County  of  Norfolk,"  vol.  2.  p.  425.  it  is  stated 
that  he  "  came  back  to  Hingham  in  the  year  1646,  after  ten  years'  vol- 
untary banishment." 


some  of  its  sawed  oak  manufactured  into  memorial  chairs. 
Another  record  is  quoted  of  the  30th  of  January,  1645,  that 
"The  seven  or  nine  men  chosen  to  order  the  prudential  affairs 
of  the  town  shall  be  chosen  out  of  the  body  of  the  To~u;n,  as 
well  non-Freemen  as  Freemen  ; "  and  the  seven  chosen  were 
"Thomas  Josselvn.  George  Marsh,  Thomas  Gill,  John  Tower, 
John  Smith,  John  Foulsham,  William  Sprague."  And,  again  : 
"It  is  ordered  &  agreed  upon  by  the  town  that  Capt.  Joshua 
Hubbard  and  John  Foulsham  shall  have  libei'ty  of  the  two  riv- 
ers. Rocky  Meadow  &  Bound  Brook  Rivers,  so  far  as  the  town 
hath  property,  to  build  &  maintain  a  saw-mill  or  mills." 

It  is  related  in  the  Exetei'  News  genealogy,  that  in  1645  there 
arose  some  "troublesome  business,"  as  Gov.  Winthrop  calls  it, 
in  reference  to  himself  personally, — a  man  named  Emes,  who 
had  been  lieutenant  of  Hingham,  having  been  appointed  cap- 
tain by  the  government,  but  rejected  by  the  people,  who  elected 
Allen  in  his  stead.  Winthrop,  then  lieutenant-governor,  insist- 
ed that  Emes  should  be  obeyed  as  commanding  officer.  The 
people  insisted  upon  having  Allen  for  their  captain,  and, 
"speaking  evil  of  dignities,"  asked,  "'What  have  magistrates 
to  do  with  us?"  protesting,  also,  that  they  would  die  at  the 
sword's  point  if  they  might  not  have  the  choice  of  their  own 
officers.  The  result  was  a  requisition  on  some  of  the  leaders 
to  give  security  for  appearance  at  court,  and  on  their  refusal,  a 
commitment  to  prison.  In  turn,  the  friends  of  the  imprisoned 
arraigned  Winthrop  for  assumption  of  power  and  illegal  impi^is- 
onment.  The  affair  terminated  in  the  acquittal  of  the  deputy 
governor;  and  a  fine  of  £155^  was  imposed  on  about  ninety 
persons,  iEzo  of  which  John  Foulsham  was  sentenced  to  pay. 
By  some  means  he  was  finally  exeinjDted,  for  his  name  does  not 
appear  among  the  censured  and  fined.      , 

After  his  removal  to  Exeter,  the  name  of  "  Goodman  Fol- 
som"  appears  in  1659  on  the  list  of  "  selectmen."  He  obtained 
a  grant  of  land  in  1660.  His  sons  also  all  obtained  similar 
grants  in  years  following.  He  was  a  juryman  in  1663.  In  July, 
1665,  being  one  of  a  committee  representing  Dover,  Portsmouth, 
Exeter,  and  Hampton,  to  consult  on  certain  political  grievances, 
he  presented  "a  petition  to  the  King's  Majesty,"  for  considera- 
tion by  the  committee,  praying  that  they  "  might  be  governed 


by  the  laws  of  England."  and  expressing  "  joy  that  the  Kino- 
had  sent  over  Commissioners  into  these  parts,"  and '^sorrow- 
that  the  Commissioners  were  evilly  entertained  by  the  Bay  Gov- 
ernment." Connected  with  this,  and  showing  further  action  in 
the  matter,  it  is  recorded  m  Vol.  I  of  the  Provincial  Papers  of 
New  Hamps/iire,  p.  280,  without  date,  but  about  1665,  that 
"testimonies  of  selectmen  are  made  that  John  Foulsham,  Sen., 
and  three  others,  Abraham  Corbitt.  Robert  Burnham  and  Ed- 
ward Hilton,  are  principal  actors  in  trying  to  procure  hands  to 
be  taken  oft'  [/.  e.,  to  sign  oft"]  from  the  Bay  Government."  In 
1676  he  and  his  brother-in-law,  Moses  Gilman,  disagreed  about 
their  boundary  lines,  and  the  latter,  in  a  passion,  pulled  up  a 
parcel  of  fence  that  stood  between  their  lands.  '■•John  Sen'r." 
instantly  entered  his  complaint.  The  case  was '•  respited"  a 
few  days  at  tiie  recjuest  of  Moses.  Intercession  on  the  part  of 
mutual  friends,  •' persuading  to  peace,  meantime  proved  fruit- 
less." John  felt  that  an  insult  and  a  wrong  had  been  commit- 
ted, and  he  pressed  the  trial.  The  decision  was  slightly  evasive 
of  the  question  of  real  line  of  boundary  ;  but  so  for  as  it  went,  it 
was  against  Moses,  who  was  required  to  bear  the  cost  of  com- 
plaint (16  shillings),  and  where,  by  pulling  down  the  fence,  he 
had  made  gaps  and  exposed  his  neighbor's  crops  to  injury,  he 
must  put  it  up  and  keep  it  up  ••  until  after  next  Indian  harvest," 
when,  of  course,  the  matter  in  dispute  might  be  opened  again, 
and  a  more  intelligent  decision  be  given.  Mr.  Commissioner 
Dalton,  however,  ''does  advise  to  peace  and  love  in  the  mean 
time,  as  their  relation  and  duty  requireth." 

From  focts  like  these,  the  descendants  of  the  Anglo-American 
John  Folsom  mav  learn  what  were  some  of  the  traits  of  char- 
acter in  their  ancestor.  He  was  enterprising,  courageous,  prom- 
inent in  the  communities  in  which  he  li\ed.  a  leader  in  public 
affairs,  determined  on  simplicity  in  religious  worship  and  equity 
in  the  state. — a  solid,  independent,  righteous,  and  true  man. 

The  earliest  period  in  which  the  name  appears  in  history  is 
the  first  half  of  the  fourteenth  century.  There  was  a  John  Foul- 
sham,  of  Foulsham.  prior  of  a  Carmelite  monastery  in  Norwich, 
and  "praeses  provincialis"  of  all  England.  In  all  probability 
he  belonged  to  a  familv  of  which  the  Folsoms  are  lineal  descend- 
ants.     He  was  D.  D.  of  Cambridge,  and,  according  to  Pitt,  is 


spoken  of  in  John  Bayle's  "Catalogue  of  Eminent  Writers"  (p, 
421)  as  follows:  "After  an  acquaintance  with  Aristotle's  meth- 
ods, and  lia\ing  <^ot  a  smattering  of  the  original  scriptures  [gus- 
tatis  scripturarum  corticibus],  he  became  no  mean  proficient  in 
controversial  theology,  knowing  how,  by  means  of  syllogistic 
tricks,  to  turn  white  into  black  and  men  into  donkeys."  He  died 
in  the  great  plague  at  Norwich,  in  1348.  Richard  Foulsham, 
also  of  Foulsham,  and  probably  the  prior's  brother,  was  much 
in  the  court  of  John  XXII  at  Rome  (1316-34),  with  whom  he 
corresponded,  and  some  of  his  letters  to  whom  were  published.* 

*  There  is  in  existence  in  the  Norfolk  (formerly  part  of  Essex  county, 
and  part  of  the  Province  of  New  Hampshire)  records  of  deeds,  book  2, 
leaf  291,  a  copy  of  a  deed  given  by  the  first  John  Folsom,  for  the  two 
following  paragraphs  from  which  we  are  indebted  to  the  kindness  of  the 
family  of  the  late  Mr.  Charles  Folsom  : 

"John  Ffulsham  of  Exiter  [N.  H.]  in  respect  of  y'  paternall  love  and

In  possession  of  the  same  family  is  a  fac-simile  of  an  autograph  of 
John  Folsom,  penned  the  year  he  died,  and  showing  another  way  of 
spelling  the  name,  as  follows:  "John  FouUsam,  1681." 

The  definite  location  of  the  "  land  in  Hingham  "  is  worthy  of  notice. 
It  may  assist  in  gaining  a  correct  conception  of  it  to  consider  that  "  Hing- 
ham was  once  the  head  town  of  a  deanery,  and  contained  43  parishes." 
"Ffulsham"  seems  to  have  been  one  of  these  outlying  parishes;  and 
the  deed  proves  that  the  first  John  Folsom  had  land  there  as  well  as  in 
"  Hackford-by-Hingham,"  as  the  latter  place  was  sometimes  called  by 
way  of  distinction.  The  appellation  "Ffulsham  at  the  Box-bushes  "  sug- 
gests a  site  where  the  box-shrub  abounded,  and  was  planted  as  an  orna- 
ment of  garden  and  lawn,  perhaps  an  ancient  home  of  his  ancestors, — 
the  buildings  long  gone, — -one  of  the  freeholds  gained  by  purchase  or 
gift  in  the  parishes  in  which  the  manors  of  the  noblemen  were  a  moiety 
only.  The  DeMarshalls  and  Morleys  had  "  manors  in  Folesham  "  from 
1202  to  1580.  The  DePoinings  had  "fees"  there  in  1324.  (See,  for 
these  various  statements,  "  Blomefield's  County  of  Norfolk,"  vol.  2.) 
It  was  also  an  "  advowson  "  (/.  e.,  with  right  attached  of  appointing  to 
a  church-living),  a  "demesne"  (the  nobleman's  tenants  being  exempt 
from  tolls  and  taxes),  &c.  ;  and  the  names  of  the  bordering  parishes  of 
Hardingham,  Langham,  and  Norrald  (Northwold,  where  it  is  stated 
that  the  "  site  of  a  manor"  had  become  "  a  pasture-close  "),  can  be  all 
identified.     Perhaps  the  land  had  been  kept  so  long  because  of  the  dear 



The  first  traceable  ancestor  of  John  Foulsham  is  (i)  Roger 
Foulsham,  of  Necton,  county  of  Norfolk.  Eng.,  whose  will  is 
dated  1534.  (2)  William,  his  son,  married  Agnes  Smith, 
alias  Foulsham,  of  Besthorpe.  and  was  father  of  (3)  Adam,  of 

Besthorpe,  who  married  Emma ,  and  whose  will  is  dated 

1565.  He  owned  lands  in  Besthorpe,  Wymondham  (Wind- 
ham) ,  Bunwell,  Hingham,  and  Hackford.      (4)   Adam,  his  son, 

was  baptized   in   1560  ;    married   Grace  :   had  a  home  in 

Hingham    and    lands    in   Besthorpe.     He    died   in   1630.      (5) 

Adam,  of  Hingham,  son  of  the  latter,  married  Agnes .  and 

died  in  1627.  The  facts  in  the  preceding  paragraph,  and  thus 
far  in  the  present,  are  given  on  the  authority  of  the  MSS.  of 
Hon.  George  Folsom,  who  visited  England  and  explored  every 
possible  source  of  information.  He  next  states  that  "'Adam," 
the  fourth  in  descent  from  •'■Roger."  left  a  son  named  ""John," 
— /.  e.,  the  first  Anglo-American  John  Foulsham.  From  this 
first  Anglo-American  John  Folsom.  of  Exeter.  N.  H..  and  his 
wife,  Mary  Gilman  Folsom,  are  descended,  so  far  as  we  know, 
all  the  Folsoms  in  America,  with  the  exception  of  one  familv, 
with  which  is  connected  a  story  curious  enough  to  be  given  in 
a  note  below.* 

associations  connected  with  it.  He  remembered  the  fragrance  and 
greenness  of  its  shrubbery;  and  now,  eight  years  before  his  death,  he 
will  not  alienate  the  ancestral  possession  from  this  family,  but  bestows 
it  on  one  of  his  sons.  The  father's  tribute  to  the  good  qualities  of  the 
son  supplies  valuable  testimony  of  character,  in  the  absence  of  any 
other  record. 

*  Mr.  Abraham  Folsom,  of  Boston,  has  related  to  the  writer  the  fol- 
lowing: That  his  younger  brother,  James  Madison  Folsom,  who  went 
to  Savannah,  Ga.,  in  1829,  and  died  before  the  Rebellion,  had  two 
sons, — Dr.  Robert  W.,  who  fell  in  the  battle  of  the  Wilderness,  the 
colonel  of  his  regiment,  and  James  M  ,  a  young  lawyer,  and  colonel  on 
the  staff  of  Gov.  Brown.  As  Col.  James  was  passing  with  a  Georgia 
regiment  through  Sumter,  S.  C.,  a  crowd  of  gentlemen  and  ladies  had 
gathered  at  the  depot  to  greet  them,  the  ladies  throwing  bouquets  to  the 
officers  and  soldiers.  Col.  James  caught  one,  and  on  his  departure 
found  in  it  a  slip  of  paper,  on  which  was  written  the  name  "Rosa 
Folsom.''  His  curiosity  being  greatly  excited,  he  wrote  to  know  about 
the  family,  and  received  the  following  reply  from  the  young  lady's 
father:  "We  are  descended  from  one  who  espoused  the  cause  of  liber- 
ty under  Crom^Nell,  but  who  died  during  the  Protectorate.  At  the 
Restoration  his  estates  were  confiscated  ;  and  soon  afterwards  the  sons 
embarked  for  America,  and  landed  at  Albemarle  Sound  [this  must  have 


[There  has  been  a  tradition  that  the  father  of  the  Folsom  fam- 
ily was,  in  England,  yohn  Smith,  and  that  his  name  was  changed 
(huing  the  voyage  to  America.  I  find  little  ground  for  this 
opinion.  John  Foulsham,  son  of  Adam,  was  baptized  in  Hing- 
ham,  Eng.,  in  i6i'^.  In  1627,  Adam  Folsham,  alias  Smith, 
made  his  will,  naming  three  sons, — John.  Adam,  and  Peter. 
John  Foulsham  married,  in  Hingham.  Eng.,  October  4,  1636, 
Mary,  daughter  of  Edward  Oilman,  who  was  baptized  August 
6,  1615.  In  163S  they  came  to  Hingham,  Mass.,  and  in  1639 
Adam  Foulsham  followed  them.  If  the  family  name  was  ever 
Smith,  it  seems  it  must  have  been  changed  before  the  birth  and 
baptism  of  John  Foulsham,  the  emigrant  to  Hingham,  Mass. 

In  1842,  "The  History  and  Antiquities  of  Foulsham,  in  Nor- 
folk," by  Rev.  Thomas  Quarles,  m.  a.,  was  printed  in  London. 
He  gives  but  little  information  respecting  the  Foulsham  family, 
as  they  seem  to  have  settled  in  Hingham  and  vicinity  at  least 
four  hundred  years  ago.  He  quotes  from  "Blomefield's  History 
of  Norfolk"  the  statement  that  "John  deFoulsham  was  an  elo- 
quent, unflinching  opponent  of  the  corruptions  of  the  times." 
In  a  "Treatise  De  Matrimonio"  he  zealously  defends  the  mai"- 
riage  of  priests,  in  an  age  so  debased  that  such  a  doctrine  was- 
totally  at  variance  with  the  teachings  of  the  Roman  church. 

Another  of  his  works  was  "  De  Arte  Praedicandi,"  or,  "  The 
Art  of  Preaching."     "  In  this  he   strenuously  urged  the  utility 
and  necessity  of  public  preaching,"  which  was  little  practised 
in  that  age.      He  is  reported  to   have  been  himself  a  model  of 
pulpit  eloquence. — J.  C] 

[John  Folsham^  sold  his  land  in  Hingham,  Mass.,  about  1655,. 
and  removed  with  his  family  to  Exeter,  N.  H.  He  lived  on  the 
west  side  of  the  river,  where  the  first  settlements  in  Exeter  were 
made  ;  but  three  of  his  sons  lived  in  the  east  part  of  the  town. 
His  sons  and  grandsons  owned  much  land  upon  what  was  called 
"Rocky  hill."     He  was  engaged  as  a  surveyor  in  running  the 

been,  if  at  all,  at  the  settlement  of  the  second  colony  at  that  place — 
1667].  Two  of  the  brothers  married  in  America.  Shortly  after  they 
simplified  their  name  by  spelling  it  'Folsom.'"  Col.  James  M.  is  the 
author  of  the  "  Heroes  of  Georeia." 


lines  between  Exeter  and  Dover,  and  while  in  this  business  dis- 
covered a  meadow,  some  eight  or  ten  miles  north-west  of  the 
village,  which  was  supposed  to  be  of  much  value  on  account  of 
the  hay  which  could  be  made  on  it. 

Some  of  his  children,  when  old  enough  to  leave  home,  return- 
ed, probably  to  their  relatives  in  Massachusetts,  and  married 
there  ;  but  all  eventually  settled  near  their  father  in  Exeter. 

In  advanced  life  he  became  unfortunately  involved  in  his 
pecuniary  affairs,  but  was  fortunate  in  having  sons  able  and 
willing  to  afford  him  the  aid  he  needed  to  retain  a  home  for 
himself  and  his  aged  companion,  who  lived  about  ten  3ears 
after  his  death,  in  16S1. 

Judging  him  in  the  light  of  the  period  when  he  lived,  we 
must  consider  him  a  very  intelligent,  earnest,  enterprising  man. 
He  may  have  been  sometimes  more  enthusiastic  than  judicious, 
and  so  have  been  found  in  advance  of  his  age  ;  but  he  was  a 
decided  Christian,  ready  to  sacrifice  wealth,  ease,  and  popular- 
ity for  the  sake  of  principle  ; — and  he  successfully  trained  up 
six  sons  to  become  efficient  laborers  in  laying  the  foundations 
of  the  commonwealth  of  New  Hampshire. — ^J.  C] 


The  dates  before  1752  are  in  old  style,  and  therefore,  when 
from  January  1  to  March  35  I  find  double  date, — e.  g.^  Feb-

As  most  of  the  family  remained  in  New  Hampshire  for  one 
hundred  and  fifty  years  from  their  settlement  here,  the  name  of 
this  state  is  not  often  given  in  connection  with  the  towns  in  it. 
Towns  in  other  states  are  usually  attended  with  the  names  of 
the  states.  The  full-faced  figures  in  parentheses  on  the  left  side

JOHN  FOLSOMS  bapt.  1615,  in  Hingham.  Eng.  (a  town 
abt.  14  miles  W.  S.  W.  of  Norwich,  and  97  N.  E.  of  London, 
in  the  neighborhood  of  a  small  lake  abt.  a  mile  in  circumference, 
and  having  a  fine  old  stone  church  with  a  tower  and  a  chime  of 
eight  bells),  m.,  4  Oct.,  1636.  Mary,  oldest  ch.  of  Edward  and 
Mary  Clark  Oilman  ;  d.  at  E.xeter,  N.  H.,  27  Dec,  16S1.  His 
widow  survived  him  8  or  10  years. 

The  names  of  the  ch.  of  yohn  Folsham  and  his  wife,  Mary 
(Oilman)  Folsham,  are  found  in  the  diary  of  Rev.  Peter  Hobart, 
of  Hingham.  Mass.,  who  recorded  the  date  at  which  he  baptized 
each  of  them.

1700.  We  suppose  he  was  b.  in  1638  or  1639.  There  is  a  tra- 
dition that  one  son  was  b.  on  the  ocean  during  the  voyage.  If 
so,  probably  he  was  the  one.  He  was  a  "  hu.sbandman,"  and 
engaged  less  in  public  affairs  than  his  father  and  some  of  his 
brothers.  He  was  probably  not  so  successful  in  pecuniary  mat- 
ters as  some  of  his  younger  brothers.     He  dealt  some  in  lumber, 

and  in  1667  promised  a  large  quantity  to  Mr.  Cutts,  of 

Portsmouth.  Being  paid  in  advance,  he  mortgaged  his  land  to 
secure  the  delivery  of  it.  In  Jan.,  1692.  he  was  appointed  ad- 
ministrator upon  the  estate  of  "John  &  Mary  Folsom  both  de- 
ceased." In  the  performance  of  this  business,  he  provoked  his 
brother,  Dea.  John,  who  in  his  passion,  by  violent  language, 
exposed  himself  to  prosecution  for  a  violation  of  the  law ;  but 


after  some  deliberation  the  trouble  was  amicably  settled.  Sam-

Appendix,  Note  A. 

Dea.  John  Folsotn^  was  a  man  of  high  standing  and  good 
property,  active  both  in  church  and  in  political  aflairs.  He  is 
amonsf  the  worthies  of  the  first  centuries  of  Exeter,  of  whom 
Judge  Smith,  in  his  centennial  address,  July  4,  1S3S,  says  that 
"they  filled  acceptably  the  municipal  and  public  offices  con- 
ferred upon  them."  He  was  frequently  sent  to  the  general  as- 

In  the  first  volume  of  "  Provincial  Papers,"  already  quoted 
with  reference  to  his  father,  there  is  a  deposition  (pp.  554"~7) 
from  the  son,  as  constable,  bearing  date  16S4,  "that  he  had  re- 
ceived a  list  of  names  in  Exeter,  with  fines  annexed,  amounting 
to  "^o^  ;  that  he  was  required  by  the  Governor  &  covnicil  to  go 
&  demand  the  sum  ;  but  the  people  refused  to  pay,  saying  the 
taxes  should  be  raised  by  the  General  Assembly,  which  answer 
he  gave  to  Gov.  &  council :  whereupon  they  took  the  scroll  out 
of  his  hands  &  delivered  it  to  Thos.  Thurton.  provost  marshall, 
&  he  was  ordered  by  a  warrant  from  the  Secretary  to  aid  the 
said  Thurton." 

This  summary  treatment  was  honorable  to  him  from  such  a 
government  as  that  of  Cranfield's,  and  shows  how  "  acceptably," 
at  least  to  the  people  if  not  to  the  party  in  power,  he  filled  that 
special  office  of  constable  by  forbearing  to  push  the  demand  for 

*  Samuel  was  doubtless  the  eldest,  for  his  name  stands  first  on  the 
record,  and  he  m.  some  12  years  before  John,  and  d.  15  years  before 
him.  The  office  of  administrator  on  his  father's  estate  was  given  him, 
in  accordance  with  the  custom,  which  was  to  offer  it  to  the  widow  or 
oldest  son  before  any  others  of  the  family. 



oppressive  and  unconstitutional  taxes  and  fines.  The  following 
quotation  from  the  same  portion  of  the  "Provincial  Papers" 
will  show  the  sort  of  "aid"  he  gave  to  the  provost  marshal,  and 
that  he  could  turn  with  wrath  and  contempt  on  the  public  foes, 
deacon  though  he  was.  Under  date  of  December  29.  1684, 
there  is  a  deposition  of  this  Thurton,  that  "being  sent  to  collect 
those  fines,  and  one  of  50  shillings  on  John  Foulsham  for  neg- 
lecting the  duty  of  his  office  as  constable,  Foulsham  told  him 
that  if  he  came  to  levy  execution  at  his  house,  he  should  meet 
him  with  a  red-hot  spit  and  scalding  water  ;  and  bade  him  go, 
like  a  rogue  as  he  was."  The  women  of  the  Oilman  family 
must  also  have  some  of  the  fame  of  this  affair  ;  for  the  provost 
marshal  adds,  that  "being  at  the  house  of  Edward  Gilman  [son 
of  the  first  Edward,  and  lost  at  sea  abt.  1653]  the  wife  of  James 
Gilman  [grandson  of  the  first  Edward,  b.  1659]  ^old  him  she 
had  provided  a  kettle  of  scalding  water  for  him.  if  he  should 
come."  He  thought  it  rather  rough  treatment,  especially  as  no 
money  had  yet  been  demanded  of  them.  In  one  instance,  in 
which  Dea.  John's  wife  had  been  slandered  by  his  sister-in-law 
Hannah,  wife  of  his  brother  Nathaniel,  he  was  determined  the 
offender  should  smart  for  it ;  and  accordingly,  making  com- 
plaint before  Mr.  Commissioner  Dalton,  he  obtained  sentence 
against  her  that  she  should  "  make  acknowledgment  at  some 
public  town-meeting."

Her  name  has  been  written  "Faxon,"  but  it  is  evidently  a  mis- 
take. In  1677  he  took  the  oath  of  allegiance,  and  was  admitted

his  name  disappears. 

It  has  been  difficult  to  obtain  much  more  satisfactory  infor- 
mation about  the  family  of  Nathaniel'^,  except  that  in  1796  he 
had  a  second  wife,  Mary,  who  signed  with  him  a  deed  of  land 
in  Exeter.  He  was  living  in  1714,  but  in  1725  his  widow, 
Mary,  was  taxed.  I  suppose  he  had,  by  both  the  first  and  the 
second  wife,  a  large  family.  Under  the  Family  No.  4  I  shall

JN.  FOLSOM^  (Dea.  Jn.^,  Jn.i)  and  his  wife,  MARY, 
had  3  ch.  b.  in  Exeter.  Among  original  papers  in  the  probate 
office  of  this  county  (not  recorded) ,  I  find  the  following,  dated 
26  Nov.,  1745  : 

"By  virtue  of  an  Act  of  the  Gen'l.  Court, — to  make  Division 
of  the  Estate  of  John  Foulsam,  late  of  Exeter  dec'd.,  We  have 
surveyed —  &  divided — as  follow^s — " 

(Signed)       "Benj.  Thing,  Daniel  Gilman  &  John  Gilman." 

They  describle  the  homestead,  near  King's  Falls,  &c.,  which, 
if  not  the  same,  was  near  the  spot  occupied  by  the  above  John 
Folsom^  thirty  years  before.  It  seems  as  if  it  must  be  the  same 
man  who   had  a  wife  Mary,  wdio  petitioned  for  this  act  of  the 



general  court.     They  name  only  3  ch., — Sztsantta,  Mary,  and 

By  long  and  perplexing  study  of  the  records,  I  find  that  there 
is  a  mistake  in  the  Folsom  Family,  p.  15  ;  that  John  Folsom' 
(Jn.2,  Jn.^)  was  not  father  of  Peter*,  of  Newmarket,  b.  1718, 
who  had  I3  ch.,  nor  of  Abr.*,  a  joiner,  who  m.  Sarah  (dau.  of 
John^  Peter-),  but  that  John  Folsom^  (Dea.  Jn.^  Jn.^).  a  farm-

and  had  b.  in  Exeter  4  ch.,  and  d.  1724-5. 

I.  SusANXA*,  b.  10  May  1718,  m.  (i),  at  Kingston,  2  Nov., 
1738,  Lt.  Jonathan  Bradley,  b.  in  Haverhill,  Mass.,  1717 
(son  of  Abr.  and  Abi.  Philbrick  Bradley).  He  settled  first  with 
his  father  in  Penacook,  and  afterwards  in  Exeter.  They  had 
4  ch, 

1.  Mary^,  b.  2  Sept.,  1739.

4.  yosiah^,  b.  20  Sept.,  1745,  d.  in  Chester;  had  2  sons. 

The  fiither,  Jonathan  Bradley,  was  killed  by  the  Indians  at 
Penacook  (Concord),  Aug.  11,  1746.  In  1760,  when  closing 
the  administration  of  the  estate,  she  is  called  the  wife  oi  John 
Bradley.  In  1748  she  owned  land  from  her  father's  estate  north- 
west of  the  road  to  Kingston,  near  King's  Falls. 

II.  Mary*,  b.  1719,  m.  Samuel  (brother  of  Jonathan)  Brad-

widowed  mother  at  the  house  of  his  grandfather,  and  inherited  the

ment where  his  grandfather  was  killed. 

2.  Mehitabel^,  b.  16  Jan.,  1745. 

Their  mother  was  a  woman  of  great  energy  and  superior  ed- 
ucation, having  been  brought  up  in  the  family  of  Nicholas  Gil- 
man,  father  of  the  governor.  Her  husband  was  a  man  of  enter- 
prise, of  piety,  and  of  much  promise.  She  used  to  tell  his 
children  of  the  last  chapter  he  read  in  the  Scriptures,  and  repeat 


expressions  he  used  in  his  hast  family  pi"ayer  before  he  was  shot 
by  the  Indians,  ii  Aug.,  1746.  She  m.  (2)  Robert  Calfe, 
of  Chester,  and  lived  there  much  respected  thirty  years,  but  re-

Mass.,  and  probably  may  have  lived  in  Canaan  in  179I5  where 
Josiah  Folsom  sold  land  in  Atkinson  to  Bailey  Bartlett,  of  Ha- 
verhill, Mass.  He  had  a  son  Josiah,  who  may  have  made  that 
deed.  He  had  9  ch.  bapt.  in  Havei-hill  between  1749  ant^  ^7^4? 
according  to  the  records  of  the  first  parish  there  ;  but  he  had

mained till  1 81 9.  One  of  the  lads  under  his  instruction  went 
with  him  to  Tunis,  and  continued  his  studies.  Nearly  50  years 
afterward,  a  naval  officer  of  renown  visited  Boston,  and,  after 
the  public  honors  of  reception,  visited  Mr.  Folsom  in  Cam- 
bridge. It  was  Vice-Admiral  Farragut,  who  in  the  defence  of 
his  country  had  risen  to  national  fame,  and  now  returned  to 
express  his  gratitude  to  his  early  instructor  for  the  training 
which  fitted  him  for  the  work  he  had  done  for  his  country  in 
her  time  of  need.  When  the  Admiral  left  New  England  he 
sent  to  his  aged  teacher,  as  a  memento  of  his  affection  and 
regard,  a  magnificent  vase,  engraved  from  sketches  drawn  by 
his  own  hand.  He  was  some  time  librarian  at  Harvard  col- 
lege, and  from  1845  to  1856  librarian  of  the  Boston  Atheneum. 
He  died  in  Cambridge,  Mass.,  8  Nov.,  1872,  leaving  "the 
most  fragrant  of  the  memories  still  blooming  from  the  dust." 
Of  him  it  was  said,  "His  kindness  was  warm,  constant,  and 
unselfish.  No  one  ever  knew  him  to  refuse  what  it  was  in  his 
power  to  grant,  or  to  think  first  of  himself,  when  the  question 
was  whether  he  should  benefit  himself  or  another."

He  was  an  eminent  contractor.  He  built  the  sea  wall  at  the 
Isles  of  Shoals  to  form  a  haven  for  imperilled  vessels,  and  only 
proved  the  futility  of  saying  to  the  furious  sea,  "  Thus  far  shalt 
thou  come,  and  no  farther."  He  built  the  enduring  works  of 
the  large  stone  wharf  on  the  western  side  of  Portsmouth  navy 
yard,  the  first  Seventy-Four  House,  vast  and  nobly  propor- 
tioned, and  timber  houses.  The  stone  church  in  Portsmouth, 
unsurpassed  for  simple  beauty  and  quiet  grandeur,  he  began  to 
build,  and  with  exultation  saw  its  walls  rise  ;  but  before  its

sick  brother,  Capt.  Joseph  L.  Folsom,  then  a  student  in  Gilman- 
ton  academy.  Abraham  D.  Folsom  was  a  young  man  of  "  ster- 
ling worth,  an  ardent  student,"  holding  a  high  position  in  the 
class  that  was  soon  to  graduate  at  Kimball  Union  Academy. 
An  eminent  lawyer  whom  he  consulted,  during  the  settleinent 
of  his  father's  estate,  said  he  "exhibited  the  clearest  powers  in 
grasping  legal  points  of  any  lad  he  had  ever  met." 


IV.  Capt.  Joseph  L.'',  b.  19  May,  1816,  lost  bis  father  at 
the  early  age  of  8  years.      His  mother  removed  to  Northfield, 


for  the  education  of  her  children.  In  1S36  he  entered  the 
military  academy  at  West  Point,  and  graduated  1S40.  He 
served  as  lieutenant  under  Gen.  Worth,  in  the  war  asrainst  the 
Seminoles  in  Florida,  and  conducted  a  bodv  of  Indians  to 
their  new  home  in  the  West.  After  serving  in  various  places 
in  the  North-west,  he  was  in  1S44  oi'dered  to  the  military  acad- 
emy at  West  Point,  as  instructor.  In  1S46  he  was  sent  under 
Col.  Stevenson  to  California,  as  Qiiartermaster  of  the  ist  Regi- 
ment N.  Y.  Vols.  He  landed  in  the  spring  of  1S47,  ''^"^  '" 
selecting  a  site  for  the  army  stores,  he  chose  the  village  Verba 
Buena,  soon  called  San  Francisco.  Here  he  invested  his  funds, 
and  engaged  with  deep  interest  in  the  improvement  of  the 
place.  The  discovery  of  gold  aided  in  the  rapid  development 
of  the  new  city,  and  in  a  few  years  it  is  said  his  fortune  had 
risen  to  eleven  millions,  and  a  magnificent  street  was  called  by 
his  name.  Amidst  all  the  cares  and  toils  of  his  civil  and  mili- 
tary life,  he  continued  his  interest  in  literarv  pursuits,  and 
remained  the  same  quiet,  gentlemanly  companion.  He  was 
cut  down  in  the  prime  of  life,  and  if  his  surviving  relatives 
reaped  no  benefit  from  his  immense  fortune,  he  left  them  the 
reputation  of  an  honest  man,  whose  pure  life  and  firm  integrity 
have  established  a  character  beyond  reproach.

few  years  before,  he  had  been  vaccinated,  taken  the  disease, 
recovered,  and  for  six  weeks  cared  for  that  class  of  patients  in 
the  hospital.  He  was  a  fine  scholar,  pure  in  principles,  cor- 
rect in  habits,  and  enthusiastic  in  his  profession.  He  had  been 
appointed  a  surgeon  in  the  U.  S.  navy,  and  was  looking  for-

[From  the  Exeter  News-Letter .'\ 

Exeter,  Jan.  i,  1881. 
Editor  Exeter  News-Letter  : — In  collecting  material  for 
the  genealogy  of  the  Folsom  family,  I  recently  received  from  a 
friend,  Thomas  Folsom,  of  West  Epping,  an  account  of  the 
murder  by  Indians  of  Nathaniel  Folsom,  Robert  Beard,  and 
Elizabeth,  wife  of  Andrew  Simpson,  in  Nottingham,  as  it  has 
been  preserved  by  tradition  among  the  descendants  of  Folsom, 
which  I  think  ought  to  be  preserved,  but  has  never,  to  my 
knowledge,  been  printed.  Mr.  D.  L.  Harvey,  who  wrote  the 
following  account,  received  it  from  the  grandchildren  of  Fol- 
som, Paul  Ladd  and  his  sister  Susan,  both  of  whom  have  been 
dead  for  many  j^ears.  Nathaniel  Folsom  is  supposed  to  have 
been  the  son  of  Nathaniel,  and  grandson  of  John  the  emigrant, 
who  came  in  1638  from  Hingham,  in  England,  with  his  father- 
in-law,  Edward  Gilman,  and  his  sons,  and  settled  in  Hingham, 


Mass.  Soon  after  1650  they  came  to  Exeter.  Nathaniel,  the 
third  son  of  the  first  John,  was  born  in  Hingham,  Mass.,  in 
1644,  and  married  there,  June  9,  1674,  Hannah  Farrow.  He 
had  a  son  Samuel,  born  in  Exeter,  April  18,  1679  ;  and  it  is 
pi'obable  his  son  Nathaniel  was  born  in  1676.  He  is  supposed 
to  have  had  younger  sons, — Jerame,  Nathaniel,  and  Edward, — • 
and  perhaps  a  daughter,  Miriam,  who  in  1734  married  Joseph 
Bean,  Sr.,  of  Kingston,  and  had  eight  ciiildren.  She  died 
March  24,  1752.  The  Nathaniel  Folsom  who  was  killed  in 
September,  1742,  was  about  66  years  of  age  at  the  time  of  his 
death.  He  lived  in  that  part  of  Exeter  which  is  now  called 
Brentwood.  I  will  give  the  account  of  this  massacre  substan- 
tially in  the  words  of  Mr.  Harvey. 

Dui'ing  the  war  of  i744i  with  the  French  and  Indians, 
Nottingham  was  one  of  the  frontier  towns,  and  for  sev- 
eral years  the  settlers  in  these  towns  were  kept  in  a  state 
of  constant  alarm.  Many  of  the  inhabitants  returned  to 
the  older  settlements  from  which  they  had  come,  and  the 
few  who  remained  to  till  the  fields  and  secure  the  crops 
that  grew  in  them  were  compelled  to  seek  shelter  in  gar- 
rison houses  nights,  and  often  days,  when  the  enemy  were 
near.  There  was  no  safety  for  man  or  beast  when  exposed  to 
the  attacks  of  the  cruel  savages.  There  was  a  garrison  at  Not- 
tingham Square,  an  elevated  spot,  from  which  the  smokes  and 
fires  of  the  Indian  camps  could  be  seen  at  a  great  distance. 
Soldiers  were  drafted  from  the  older  towns  to  guard  the  inhab- 
itants of  the  frontiers.  If  these  people  were  murdered,  the 
towns  joining  them  would  be  entirel}-  exposed  to  inroads  of  the 
savages.  A  draft  was  made  in  Exeter  to  protect  the  settlers  of 
Nottingham,  each  quota  of  soldiers  to  serve  two  weeks,  and 
then  be  relieved  by  another  quota.  A  young  unmarried  neigh- 
bor to  Folsom  was  drafted,  but  the  girl  to  whom  he  was 
engaged  made  such  a  distressing  lamentation  over  it  that  Fol- 
som volunteered  to  take  his  place,  and,  with  the  others,  served 
out  his  time.  His  fellow-soldiers  left,  without  waiting  for  the 
new  recruits  to  come  and  take  their  places.  But  Folsom  was 
satisfied  that  the  Indians  were  about  them,  for  the  clothes 
which  the  women  had  spread  on  the  walls  of  the  garrison  were 
cut  in  the  night  by  tomahawks  ;  and   Beard  entreated  him  to 


Stop,  saying,  "I  shall  be  killed  if  you  go  away."  vSo  he 
remained  ;  and  Beard  went  out  to  his  home  (on  Fish  street, 
opposite  to  Rodger's  Lane,  Nottingham)  to  cut  the  tops  of  hi& 
corn-stalks,  and  Folsom,  with  his  gun,  went  to  guard  him-- 
At  noon  they  broke  some  ears  of  green  corn,  and  \vent  to  the 
house  to  cook  it  for  dinner.  Folsom  brought  from  a  spring  a 
pail  of  water  to  boil  it  in,  and  put  down  tw"o  ears  to  roast 
while  the  rest  was  boiling.  When  thev  had  begun  to  eat 
their  corn  the  dog  growled,  and  Folsom  caught  his  gun  and 
ran  to  the  door.  The  Indians  instantly  shot  him,  and  he  fell 
back  into  a  ladder  standing  behind  him,  dead.  It  seems  the 
ball  struck  near  his  heart,  for  the  belt  \^  hich  he  wore  was  long 
preserved  in  the  family,  and  shown  with  the  bullet-hole  in  it. 
At  the  same  time  thev  shot  JVIr.  Robert  Beard  through  the 
window.  They  then  went  to  the  house  of  Mrs.  Simpson, 
having  doubtless  discovered  that  she  had  left  the  garrison  and 
gone  home,  where  she  was  about  to  bake  some  bread.  One 
named  Plasawa  (or  Plausawa),  being  the  youngest,  went  into 
the  house  and  stabbed  her  in  the  breast.  He  said  "She  blared 
like  a  calf."  The  other  two  went  in  and  asked  her  if  she  could 
walk  (intending,  perhaps,  to  take  her  a  captive  to  Canada). 
She  said  No  ;  so  they  killed  her  on  the  spot  and  left  the  place. 
Some  years  afterw^ards  three  Indians,  named  Sunda,  Sabatis. 
and  Plasawa,  when  intoxicated,  told  Morrill,  the  son-in-law  of 
Folsom.  that  at  this  time  they  had  been  some  time  in  the  vicin- 
ity ;  that  they  had  lain  three  days  under  a  pile  of  boards  in 
Exeter,  and  prowled  about  in  the  nights  ;  that  their  object  was 
to  see  if  the  whites  were  off  their  guard.  They  said  thev  did 
not  know  as  they  killed  the  old,  grey-bearded  man  ;  but  if  they 
did  they  had  killed  a  bonny  spry  one,  for  he  jumped  over  the 
bars  with  a  pail  of  water  in  his  hand,  and  did  not  spill  a  drop. 
They  said  they  did  not  mean  to  kill  Mrs.  Simpson,  but  to 
carry  her  to  Canada,  hoping,  doubtless,  to  get  a  large  sum  for 
her  redemption ;  but  Plasawa  had  never  been  out  scouting 
before,  and  he  went  in  and  stabbed  her.  As  she  could  not 
travel  after  receiving  such  a  wound,  they  finished  their  work 
by  striking  their  tomahawks  into  her  head  and  taking  her  life. 
Mrs.  Simpson  was  a  large  woman,  and  also  lame,  so  that  she 
could  not  make  a  long  journey  through  the  forest  on  foot.     The 


bodies  of  these  persons, — Folsom,  Beard,  and  Mrs.  Simpson, — 
were  buried,  as  I  was  informed  by  Col.  Joseph  Cilley,  at  Not- 
tingham Square,  in  a  spot  back  of  where  the  garrison  tlien 
stood,  north  of  J.  H.  Butler's  house.  An  account  by  Mr. 
Harvey  of  the  death  of  the  two  older  Indians,  by  violence, 
may  be  the  subject  of  a  future  communication.

Exeter,  March  i,  iSSi. 
Editor  Exeter  News-Letter  : — There  are,  as  we  should 
expect,  when  we  consider  the  circumstances,  different  accounts 
of  this  event.  There  was  no  reporter  on  the  ground,  and  we 
could  not  expect  the  men  who  did  the  deeds  would  put  the  facts 
on  record  and  publish  them.  By  so  doing  they  would  not  only 
expose  themselves  to  the  vengeance  of  the  Indians,  but  to  pun- 
ishment by  the  laws  of  the  land.  The  children  of  the  murdered 
persons  would  desire  the  punishment  of  the  murderers.  If  their 
neighbors  had  knowledge  of  the  transaction,  there  were  many 
reasons  why  they  would  not  publish  the  facts.  The  tradition 
which  I  have  I'eceived  from  Mr.  D.  L.  Harvey  of  Epping,  he 
received  from  the  nephew  and  niece  of  Morril,  a  son-in-law  of 
Folsom,  who  seems  to  have  been  the  most  prominent  man  in 
taking  the  lives  of  these  Indians.  Henry  MotTil  married,  in 
Kingston,  Jan.  30,  1739,  Susanna,  daughter  of  Nathaniel  Fol- 
som, of  Exeter.  They  joined  the  church  there,  and  had  five 
children  baptized  between  1742  and  1752.  In  1749  he  was  one 
of  the  proprietors  of  Stevens  town,  called  Salisbury  in  1768. 
Those  Indians  who  had  killed  and  plundered  the  early  settlei's 
in  Nottingham  could  not  he  contented,  but  continued  to  hover 
about  the  frontiers.  In  1752,  some  years  after  the  murder  of 
Folsom  and  his  friends,  Sabatis,  with  another  Indian  named 
Christi,  came  to  Canterbury,  and  for  more  than  a  month  were 
hospitably  entertained.  Still,  when  they  left,  they  took  with 
them  as  prisoners  two  negroes,  of  whom  one  escaped  and  the 
other  was  sold  to  a  French  officer  at  Crown  Point.     The  next 


year  Sabatis  returned  again,  with  two  associates,  Sanda  and 
Plausawa.  When  reproached  for  his  misconduct  on  the  year 
before  they  became  very  insolent,  and,  it  is  said,  threatened 
some  persons  who  proposed  to  trade  with  them.  But  I  will 
proceed  to  Mr.  Harvey's  account.  Some  men  from  Newbury, 
Mass.,  went  up  on  the  Merrimack  river  hunting  cattle.  On 
their  return  they  informed  Morril  where  these  Indians  were, 
and  how  hostile  the}^  appeared.  He  said  he  would  go  up  and 
see  them.  They  advised  him  not  to  go,  but  he  said  he  was  not 
afraid  of  them.  [He  probably  knew  them,  and  had  his  plan  to 
control  them.]  So  he  went  up,  on  horseback,  and  when  he  had 
found  them  he  proposed  that  they  go  with  him  and  spend  the 
night  at  his  house.  They  accepted  the  invitation,  and  he  took 
their  packs  on  his  horse.  That  evening  they  were  supplied 
with  liquor  at  his  house,  and  with  a  man  named  Bowen,  as 
fond  of  drink  as  themselves,  they  spent  most  of  the  night  in  a 
drunken  carousal.  They  bragged  of  killing  Folsom,  Beard, 
and  Mrs.  Simpson,  probably  unaware  of  any  relationship  be- 
tween them  and  the  family  that  was  now  entertaining  them. 
At  length  they  were  overcome  by  liquor  and  fell  asleep.  Mor- 
ril then  drew  the  charges  from  their  guns,  and  replaced  the 
powder  with  sand.  In  the  morning,  after  eating  their  break- 
fast, at  their  request  Morril  took  their  baggage  on  his  horse 
to  carry  it  to  their  canoes.  He  happened  to  be  before  them, 
when  one  of  them  aimed  his  gun  at  him  and  snapped  it. 
Morril  heard  it,  and  turning  saw  the  smoke  of  the  powder 
that  flashed  in  the  pan.  The  Indian  pretended  that  it  was 
only  a  joke.  They  came  to  a  spring  by  the  way,  and  the 
Indians,  after  their  drunkenness,  were  very  dry.  They  said 
to  Bowen  and  Morril,  "White  men  drink  first."  Morril  an- 
swered, "  Indian  best  drink  first,"  and  all  three  lay  down  to 
drink.  Morril  seized  two  of  the  tomahawks,  and  told  Bowen 
to  strike  one  of  them.  Bowen  said,  "  I  cannot."  Morril 
said,  "  Strike,  or  I  will  strike  you."  They  buried  the  toma- 
hawks in  the  heads  of  Sanda  and  Sabatis,  the  two  older  Ind- 
ians, but  Plausawa,  the  youngest,  begged  so  earnestly  for  his 
life  that  they  spared  him.  Of  course  he  was  obliged  to  flee  for 
his  life  to  his  people,  and  the  white  people  may  have  thought 
he  was   dead,   and   thus  the  report  was   recorded  by  different 


writers.  This  was  done  on  the  bank  of  the  Merrimack,  near 
the  northerl}^  hne  of  Boscawen.  The  dead  bodies  were  buried 
under  a  small  bridge  in  Salisbury,  which  is  called  "■  Indian 
bridge."  The  graves  were  so  shallow  that  the  wild  beasts  dug 
up  the  bodies,  and  the  next  spring  the  bones  were  discovered 
and  buried.  Morril  and  Bowen  were  arrested,  the  gi'and  jury 
found  a  bill  against  them,  and  they  were  put  in  irons  and 
lodged  in  Portsmouth  jail.  On  the  night  previous  to  the  day  of 
their  trial,  a  mob,  collected  from  the  sections  of  the  country  that 
had  suffered  from  the  Indians,  broke  open  the  jail,  and  released 
these  prisoners,  or,  as  one  says,  "carried  them  oft' in  triumph." 
Exertions  were  made  to  detect  the  ringleaders  of  the  mob,  but 
without  success.  The  public  sentiment  of  the  community, 
which  had  suftered  so  much  from  the  bloodv  hands  of  the  sav- 
ages, was  in  favor  of  the  men  who  put  them  out  of  the  way. 
As  the  mob  returned  from  Portsmouth,  they  found,  by  the  road- 
side, cooked  provisions.  Though  no  person  was  to  be  seen, 
they  read  the  invitation,  "  Eat  and  welcome."  It  was  hard  for 
those  who  had  suftei'ed  so  much  from  the  Indians  to  believe  that 
the  murder  of  peaceable  men,  women,  and  children  was  justi- 
fied by  the  laws  of  war,  and  that  the  conclusion  of  peace  be- 
tween nations  should  protect  individual  murderers  from  punish- 
ment for  their  crimes.  So,  when  Plausawa  returned  to  his  old 
haunts,  he  found  his  life  in  danger,  and  applied  to  the  governor 
for  a  pi-otection.  The  governor  gave  it  to  him,  and,  in  addition, 
a  suit  of  clothes  and  a  cocked  hat.  On  his  way  home  he  hap- 
pened to  call,  in  Exeter  or  Brentwood,  at  the  house  of  Folsom, 
who  had  been  killed  only  a  few  years  before  by  Plausawa's 
companions  in  Nottingham.  Benjamin,  the  youngest  son,  was 
soon  missed,  and  when  found  was  loading  a  gun  to  shoot  the 
Indian.  But  he  was  kept  out  of  the  way  till  Plausawa  was  sent 
oft' beyond  his  reach.  Mr.  Harvey,  who  has  furnished  me  with 
these  facts,  is  great-grandson  of  Folsom  who  was  killed.  His 
grandmother  was  Martha  Folsom,  who,  a  few  years  after  the 
death  of  her  father,  married  Paul  Ladd,  of  Exeter,  who  re- 
moved to  Stratham,  and  soon  after  to  Epping,  where  his 
mother,  Lois,  wife  of  James  Harvey,  was  born.

The  story  of  Miss  Folsom,  the  Stratford  beauty,  who  became 
Ladv  Stirling,  of  Edinburgh,  Scotland,  will  perhaps  lose  little  of 
its  interest  if  divested  of  some  of  the  fictitious  additions  that 
have  in  a  hundred  years  become  attached  to  it.  Few  are  aware 
that  her  grandfather,  and  probably  her  father,  were  natives  of 
Exeter.  N.  H.  About  1723,  or  160  years  ago,  Israel  Folsom, 
of  Exeter,  removed  to  Ashford,  Ct.,  and  had  a  son  Samuel, 
probably  born  in  Exeter,  baptized  at  Ashford.  Samuel  Fol- 
som married  Ann  Bingham,  and  in  1743  or  1744  removed  from 
Windham  to  Stratford,  Ct.,  where  he  and  his  wife  united  with 
the  Episcopal  society,  which  was  organized  about  that  time. 
He  was  a  farmer,  and  had.  like  many  other  Yankees,  some 
skill  in  handling  tools.  On  his  land  was  a  blacksmith-shop, 
where  he  did  his  own  work  in  iron,  and  perhaps  sometimes  did 
a  job  for  a  neighbor.  In  his  family  record  I  find  nine  children 
named,  of  whom  the  eighth  was  remarkable  for  her  beautv,  and 
when  quite  young  was  called  the  belle  of  the  village.  On  the 
record  her  name  is  first  Anna,  and  Glorianna  is  written  after 
it.  With  respect  to  the  w^ay  in  which  she  became  the  wife  of 
Sir  John  Stirling,  I  ^vill  allow  her  brother's  granddaughter, 
Mrs.  E.  F.  Norris,  of  Glens  Falls,  N.  Y.,  to  tell  the  stor}"- 
mostly  in  her  own  words.  Mrs.  Norris  \vas  bi'ought  up  in  the 
family  of  Rev.  John  Folsom,  of  Glens  Falls,  a  younger  brother 
of  Lady  Stirling,  who  was  well  acquainted  with  all  the  circum- 
stances connected  with  this  marriage.  It  took  place  just  before 
the  Revolutionary  war,  and  so  for  many  years  she  had  but  little 
intercourse  with  her  relations.  About  1768  the  only  son  of  the 
Baronet,  Sir  John  Stirling,  Scotland,  was  sent  to  one  of  the 
West  India  Islands  to  look  after  some  property  belonging  to 
his  mother.  He  was  well  supplied  \vith  clothing,  etc.  He 
was  to  write  home  for  money,  if  he  should  need  it,  putting  a 
private  mark  upon  his  letter.  After  a  while  he  w\as  taken  very 
sick  of  a  fever.  When  he  wrote  he  forgot  about  putting  the 
private  mark  upon  his  letters,  and   so  received  no  answers  to 


them,  and  was  in  a  pitiable  state  among  strangers,  without 
funds  or  good  health.  Providentially  a  sea-captain,  from 
Stratford,  Ct.,  came  to  board  at  the  same  house  where  he  was 
staying.  He  took  pity  on  him,  and  kindly  offered  to  carry  him 
home,  in  his  vessel,  without  any  money.  He  told  Stirling  he 
could  write  to  his  father  from  Connecticut.  He  gladly  accepted 
the  offer,  and  sailed  with  him  to  a  more  healthful  climate.  Some 
time  after  he  left,  a  letter  came  from  his  father  in  Scotland  to 
some  person  in  the  town  or  near  the  place  where  he  had  been, 
inquiring  for  his  son,  John  Stirling.  The  answer  returned 
was,  that  he  had  been  there,  had  been  very  sick,  and  they 
could  not  learn  what  had  become  of  him.  They  supposed  he 
must  be  dead. 

When  the  young  man  had  reached  the  home  of  his  benefac- 
tor, refreshed  by  the  sea  voyage,  he  did  not  "  travel  incognito," 
nor  assume  any  other  name.  He  had  no  money  to  expend  in 
travelling  ;  he  had  given  up  hope  of  receiving  aid  from  home. 
But  he  determined  to  make  an  honest  living  by  the  proper  use 
of  what  he  had  kept  during  the  days  of  disappointment,  pover- 
ty, and  sickness.  The  education  he  had  received  in  Scotland 
now  became  his  means  of  support,  for  the  people  of  Stratford 
were  glad  to  pay  him  for  instructing  their  children.  Among 
the  pupils  under  his  care  was  Miss  Folsom,  who,  though  about 
18  years  of  age,  was  more  anxious  to  acquire  an  education  than 
to  secure  a  husband.  It  is  not  known  whether  he  wrote  home 
from  this  place  or  not,  but  he  heard  nothing  from  home.  It  is 
not  strange  that  under  these  circumstances,  when  he  had  be- 
come acquainted  with  her  moral  character  and  intellectual 
abilities,  he  should  be  captivated  by  her  beauty,  and  find  his 
affection  reciprocated.  They  were  married  in  177^'  ^'^^  ^'^^ 
continued  in  his  office  as  teacher.  After  the  birth  of  their  first 
child,  Mary,  a  young  minister  who,  according  to  the  custom  of 
the  Episcopal  church,  was  going  to  Scotland  to  be  ordained, 
having  made  the  acquaintance  of  Stirling,  offered  to  hunt  vip  his 
father  and  family  when  he  reached  Scotland,  and  inquire  why 
they  did  not  answer  their  son  when  he  wrote  to  them.  Stirling 
seemed  to  think  it  was  of  no  use.  But  the  clergyman,  having 
become  interested  in  him,  insisted  upon  his  giving  him  the 
means  of  proving  to  them  that  he  was  their  long  lost  son,  still 


living.  He  was  furnished  with  a  list  of  the  supplies  which 
his  parents  had  put  up  for  him  when  lie  left  home,  such  as 
clothing,  etc.,  evidence  to  satisfy  them  of  his  identity. 

His  clerical  friend  sailed  for  Scotland.  But  he  had  deeply 
stirred  up  the  recollections  of  home  in  the  mind  of  the  quiet 
teacher.  He  dreamed  one  night  that  he  was  again  with  his 
parents,  in  the  home  of  his  childhood,  and  of  that  private 
mark  which  he  was  to  put  upon  every  one  of  his  letters,  and 
which  he  had  forgotten.  Wiien  the  young  clergN'man  reached 
Scotland,  he  soon  found  the  family.  The  mother  and  sister 
were  dressed  in  deep  mourning.  When  he  asked  them  if  they 
had  a  son  who  went  to  the  West  Indias,  they  commenced 
weeping,  and  said  he  was  dead.  He  at  last  convinced  them 
that  their  son  was  alive,  telling  them  his  circumstances.  They 
w^ere  overioyed,  and  at  once  wrote  for  him  to  come  home  on  the 
first  vessel,  without  waiting  for  his  wife  and  child  to  get  ready, 
and  in  due  time  they  would  send  for  them.  He  did  so.  It  is 
very  possible,  and  even  probable,  that  the  gossips,  when  he 
took  leave  so  suddenly,  concluded  that  he  must  have  been  an 
imposter,  and  lamented  the  sad  condition  of  the  deserted  wife 
and  her  little  daughters, — for  she  had  a  second  daughter,  Jane, 
born  soon  after  the  departure  of  her  husband.  But  there  is  no 
proof  that  she  heard  nothing  from  him  for  two  years,  as  the 
story  savs.  It  mav  have  seemed  a  long  period  to  the  neigh- 
bors, but,  after  he  had  had  time  to  prepare  a  home  for  her,  and 
a  large  quantity  of  beautiful  clothing  was  made  up  for  his  wife 
and  children,  the  ship  left  and  arrived  safely  in  New  York. 
She  received  the  request  to  embark  immediately.  She  left 
Stratford  with  her  children,  and  found  in  the  vessel  everything 
which  she  needed,  provided  for  their  comfort  and  convenience, 
and  a  servant  maid  to  aid  her  in  tlie  care  of  the  children.  She 
reached  Scotland  in  due  time,  and  her  husband,  as  only  son, 
succeeded  to  the  estate  and  the  honors  of  the  Baronet  Stirling, 
and  she  became  Lady  John  Stirling.  I  have  in  my  possession  a 
long  letter  from  her  husband  to  her  brother,  John  Folsom, 
Esq.,  merchant  in  Albany,  and  aftei-wards  of  Glens  Falls,  N. 
Y.,  an  elder  and  a  preacher  in  the  Presbyterian  church;  and 
another  written  just  after  her  death  by  her  oldest  daughter, 
Mrs.  Mary  Achison.      She  was  not  only  a  beautiful  woman,  but 


a  woman  of  remarkable  energy  of  character.  They  lived  for  a 
time  near  Stirling  castle,  and  afterwards,  by  the  request  of  his 
father,  in  Edinburgh,  near  his  father's  residence.  They  had 
eighteen  children,  of  whom  sixteen  lived  to  be  old  enough  to 
attend  the  Parish  church,  at  the  same  time  with  their  parents, 
one  Sabbath.  Though  she  only  saw  one  of  lier  father's  family, 
a  brother,  after  she  left,  she  never  forgot  the  happy  davs  of  her 
early  life,  and  used  to  tell  her  daughters  of  the  scenes  through 
which  she  had  passed  in  childhood  and  youth,  perhaps  the  hap- 
piest days  she  ever  knew, — for  with  wealth  and  honor  came 
many  trials,  which  she  endured  with  Christian  patience  and  for- 

[Note.  We  should  remember  that  120  years  ago,  the  age  of  ro- 
mance had  not  entirely  past.  The  excitement  was  beginning,  which 
resulted  in  the  separation  of  the  colonies  from  the  mother  country.  The 
Post-Office  Department  hm]  not  perfected  its  arrangements  for  the  ac- 
commodation of  letter-writers.  After  1774,  or  the  time  when  Stirling 
returned  to  his  native  land,  there  was  little  harmonious  intercourse  be- 
tween England  and  this  part  of  America.  Many  events  occurred  in 
those  stormy  times  which  in  these  days  would  be  considered  improba- 
ble, if  not  impossible  ;  but  few  of  them  have  been  preserved  in  the 
records  of  that  period.]

Lieutenant  Jonathan  Folsom,  brother  of  General  Nathaniel 
Folsom,  of  Exeter,  though  not  so  widely  known  as  his  brother, 
was  not  less  brave  or  patriotic.  He  v^-as  born  in  Exeter  in  1 724, 
and  married  (i)  a  Oilman,  (2)  Deborah,  daughter  of  Joseph 
Hall.  He  lived  in  Newmarket  and  in  Epping,  and  had  a  large 
family.  Late  in  life  he  made  his  home  in  New  Durham,  with  his 
eldest  son,  Jonathan,  where  he  died  about  iSoo.  In  1745,  at  the 
age  of  21,  he  was  lieutenant  in  Captain  Somersby  Oilman's  com- 
panv,  which  fought  under  Sir  William  Fepperel.  at  the  first 
capture  of  Louisburg.  Ten  years  later,  in  1755,  he  was  in  the 
expedition  to  Lake  Oeorge  against  Crown  Point,  where  many 


of  his  fellow-soldiers  fell  in  battle,  and  where  his  brother,  then 
captain,  acquired  much  honor  by  his  bold  and  successful  attack 
upon  the  French  and  Indians.  At  this  battle  he  received  a 
dangerous  bullet  wound  through  his  shoulder  under  the  collar- 
bone, the  scars  of  which  he  carried  throug-h  life.  HavinsT 
fought  so  often  and  exposed  his  life  in  defence  of  the  English 
government,  he  would  naturally  feel  reluctant  to  engage  in 
opposition  to  it.  So  when  the  Stamp  Act  was  repealed,  in 
1766,  and  there  was  a  prospect  of  peace,  there  was  much 
rejoicing.  At  the  celebration,  May  19,  1766,  he  lost  one  leg  by 
the  bursting  of  a  cannon.  It  is  said  to  have  been  an  old  swivel 
which  had  been  buried  nearly  twenty  years,  which  the  enthusi- 
astic citizens  in  the  excitement  of  the  occasion  had  dug  up  and 
had  brought  into  use,  without  the  precaution  of  testing  its 
strength.  One  would  suppose  that  under  these  circumstances 
it  was  time  for  him  to  retire.  But  when  the  Revolutionary 
war  commenced,  he  set  out  for  another  campaign,  and  found 
his  way  to  Bunker  Hill.  Here  he  hobbled  into  battle  on  his 
wooden  leg,  and  took  charge  of  a  mortar  It  is  said  that  at  the 
second  shot  he  threw  a  bomb  upon  the  deck  of  a  British  man- 
of-war,  which  led  her  to  draw  oft'  as  soon  as  possible  into  safer 
quarters.  His  posterity  have  become  numerous  and  Vv'idely 
scattered,  many  of  them  in  the  West.  His  son,  Jonathan,  was 
many  years  town-clerk  in  New  Durham.  Among  his  descend- 
ants are  Captain  Hawley  Folsom,  of  the  Boston  police.  Dr. 
James  Folsom,  Commercial  street,  Boston,  Thomas  J.  Pink- 
ham,  Esq.,  Lynn,  Mass.,  W.  F.  Durgin,  Medford,  Mass.

Of  the  many  prominent  and  useful  men  that  Exeter  produced 
in  the  first  two  centuries  after  its  settlement,  few,  if  any,  are 
more  worthy  of  a  place  in  the  history  of  the  town  than  General 
Nathaniel  Folsom. 

His  father  was  Jonathan   Folsom,  a  farmer  in  the  east  part 


of  the  town,  and  his  mother  was  Anna  (daughter  of  Nathaniel) 
Ladd.  When  he  was  14  3-ears  old  his  father  died,  leaving  a 
large  family  of  children,  some  of  them  quite  small.  Nathaniel 
learned  a  trade,  and  became  a  respectable  mechanic,  but  was 
early  elected  an  officer  in  the  militia.  His  services  were  soon 
required  in  the  expedition  against  Crown  Point.  In  1755  he 
led  his  company  from  New  Hampshire  through  the  woods  to 
Albany,  and  thence  to  Fort  Edward,  where  the  New  Hamp- 
shire rangers  were  posted.  On  the  Sth  of  September,  at  about 
4  o'clock  p.  M.,  he  met  a  large  body  of  French  and  Indians 
returning  from  their  unsuccessful  attack  upon  Fort  George. 
With  eighty  New  England  men  and  about  forty  New  York  sol- 
diers, he  attacked  them,  keeping  up  the  battle  till  night,  with 
great  loss  to  the  enemy.  In  the  report,  it  is  said  "  they  con- 
tinued an  obstinate  engagement,  with  more  than  a  thousand 
men,  about  three  hours,  when  night  came  on,  and  the  French 
and  Indians  went  oft'  and  left  all.  They  killed  great  numbers 
of  the  enemv,  and  recovered  1,200  packs." 

The  engagement  of  the  day,  thus  closed  by  Capt.  Folsom,  it 
is  said,  "  served  more  than  anything  else  to  revive  the  spirit  of 
the  colonies." 

In  1767  he  was  major,  and  soon  after  colonel.  I  know  not 
that  the  general  ever  claimed  the  honor,  but  a  British  officer, 
commanding  at  Portsmouth,  gave  him  the  ci'edit  of  leading  a 
company  of  men  who  surprised  the  garrison  at  that  place,  and 
took  away  from  the  fort  the  powder  and  the  cannon  without 
shedding  anv  blood,  or  doing  violence  to  any  person. 

The  arms  and  ammunition  taken  at  that  time  proved  of  great 
value  to  the  colonists,  who  were  poorly  prepared  to  meet  the 
advance  of  the  British  army. 

He  had  for  several  vears  been  a  member  of  the  New  Hamp- 
shire house  of  representatives,  and  in  Julv,  1774,  was  chosen 
with  General  John  Sullivan  to  the  first  general  congress,  which 
met  at  Philadelphia. 

Being  a  firm  and  ardent  patriot,  he  served  during  the  siege 
of  Boston  as  brigadier-general.  In  1775  he  was  commissioned 
major-general  ;  but  in  February,  177^'  ^^^^  wife  died,  leaving  a 
large  family  of  children,  and  he,  being  relieved  by  Gen.  Sulli- 
van,  returned  to   Exeter.     The   same  year  he   was  appointed 


judge  of  the  court  of  common  pleas,  an  office  which  he  held 
(being  part  of  the  time  chief-justice)  till  his  death  in  May, 

In  1777  and  1779  he  was  again  a  member  of  congress.  In  a 
letter  to  his  friend,  Hon.  Meshech  Weare,  president  of  the 
council  of  New  Hampshire,  he  said, — "  The  Sth  Article  of  the 
Constitution  gave  him  great  uneasiness,"  as  it  gave  the  South 
an  exemption  from  taxation  for  their  slaves,  who  constituted 
one  third  of  their  wealth,  and  thus  threw  a  larger  burden  upon 
the  free  states  than  was  equitable. 

In  177S  he  was  chosen  councillor,  and  in  1783  was  temporary- 
president  of  the  convention  that  framed  the  constitution  of  New 

General  Folsom  was  not  brilliant,  but  was  quiet,  firm,  and 
judicious — successful  in  business,  leaving  a  large  property  to 
his  heirs.  He  was  a  patriot  and  a  brave  soldier,  but  he  was 
also  "  a  Christian,  and  not  swift  in  private  battles."  He  was 
active  and  useful  at  home,  being  highly  respected  by  his  neigh- 
bors, and  the  community  sustained  a  great  loss  at  his  death. 


There  have  been  many  others  who  have  deserved  more  ex- 
tensive notice  than  I  have  given  them  in  this  work,  especially 
those  who,  with  a  spirit  of  noble  patriotism,  responded  to  the 
calls  of  our  country  in  the  day  of  its  need — who  were  willing 
to  leave  their  comfortable  homes  and  kind  friends,  and  take  the 
posts  of  danger  in  the  defence  of  our  homes  and  our  firesides  ; 
but  I  have  not  been  able  (except  in  a  few  cases)  to  obtain  the 
information  necessary  for  such  records.  Many  now  living  have 
been  too  modest  to  tell  me  the  particulars  necessary  for  bio- 
graphical sketches,  and  the  records  of  their  deeds  in  the  service 
of  their  country  remain  unwritten.  They  gladly  laid  down  their 
deadly  weapons,  and  cheerfully  returned  to  the  vocations  of 
civil  life,  where  there  may  be  seem  discharging  the  duties  of 
honorable  citizens.  They  have  no  pleasure  in  recollecting  the 
sad  scenes  of  blood  and  ruin  through  which  they  have  passed, 


but  look  back  upon  those  fearful  conflicts  as  upon  painful 
dreams,  which  are  to  return  no  more. 

The  friends  of  those  who  have  departed  shrink  from  furnish- 
ing me  the  means  of  publishing  an  account  of  the  toils  and  the 
sufferings  through  which  they  passed  before  each  one  finished 
his  course.     But  we  know  that  their  record  is  on  high. 

Those  who  wish  to  keep  more  extended  records  of  their 
friends  can  easily  insert  a  few  more  leaves  in  this  vokmie,  with 
such  particulai's  as  they  wish  to  preserve  for  future  generations. 


Different  families,  as  well  as  different  races,  have  exhibited 
peculiar  traits  of  character  ;  and  the  earlier  generations  of  this 
family  afford  illustrations  of  this  principle. 

I.  It  was  a  re/^^/'o?^^  family.  Religious  principles  led  John 
Folsom,  the  father  of  the  American  branch,  with  his  relatives, 
the  Gilmans,  to  sell  most  of  their  estates  in  their  native  land 
for  half  the  price  they  were  worth,  and  leave  for  the  use  of 
others  what  they  could  not  sell  ;  to  bid  farewell  to  old  friends 
and  the  familiar  scenes  of  early  life,  and  encounter  the  dangers 
of  a  long  voyage  over  the  wide  ocean,  and  expose  themselves 
to  the  treacherous  attacks  of  the  cruel  and  warlike  savages  ;  to 
submit  to  the  self-denying  toils,  sufferings,  and  destitutions 
which  were  then  unavoidable  in  settling  this  new  and  unex- 
plored country,  and  in  laying  the  foundations  of  this  new  state. 
When  they  must  have  known,  from  the  experience  of  the 
friends  who  had  gone  before  them,  much  of  the  dangers  to  be 
met,  it  required  great  courage  and  decision  of  character  to 
enable  them  to  face  all  these  dangers,  for  the  purpose  of  obtain- 
ing homes  for  their  families  and  freedom  to  worship  God.  It 
was  a  religious  movement ;  and  their  religious  teacher  came 
with  them,  to  share  in  their  trials.  Owing  to  the  suspension 
of  persecutions  in  his  former  parish,  he  returned  in  a  few  years^ 
and  closed  his  ministerial  work  with  the  portion  of  his  parish- 
ioners whom  they  had  left  in  old  Hingham,  England.  For 
more  than   a   hundred   years  the    religious   element   continued 



prominent  in  the  family.  When  Whitefield  visited  America, 
many  of  them  became  his  devoted  followers.  Their  zeal  in 
the  new  cause  roused  much  opposition,  and  not  a  few  of  them 
separated  from  the  churches  of  their  fathers,  which  they  imag- 
ined had  become  corrupted,  and  they  were  classed  among  the 
New  Lights.  The  Baptists,  who  had  been  unpopular,  sympa- 
thized with  them,  and  received  them  with  open  arms;  and 
many  of  the  fiimily  became  preachers  and  prominent  men  in 
that  denomination,  passing  over,  in  the  division  that  followed, 
into  the  Freewill  Baptist  church,  which  probably  has  contained 
more  of  the  famil}-  than  any  other  church. 

2.  The  Occupations  of  the  Family.  Most  of  the  sons,  in 
the  early  families,  learned  each  some  mechanical  trade.  Many 
were  joiners,  millwrights,  &c.  But  they  were  not  long  confin- 
ed to  these  occupations,  but  became  farmers,  merchants,  lum- 
bermen, &c.  The  children  and  grandchildren  of  the  emigrant 
were  extensive  landholders,  and  the  4th  and  5th  genei-ations 
inherited  lands,  and  were  interested  in  saw-mills. 

John  Folsom,  the  first,  was  engaged  in  erecting  a  saw-mill 
soon  after  he  landed  in  America.  After  removing  to  Exeter, 
his  children  and  grandchildren  were  soon  engaged  in  business 
connected  with  mills.  I  find  their  names  as  holding  property 
in  the  mill  on  the  "Little  river  that  falls  into  the  s^reat  river 
above  the  village,"  the  mills  at  the  Lower  Falls,  Upper  Falls, 
King's  Falls,  Pickpocket,  Crawley's,  and  "The  Rocks"  (now 
Fremont)  ;  upon  the  Piscassic  river,  upon  Lamprev  river,  at 
Wadley's  Falls,  Upper  and  Lower  Pawtuckaway  Falls  in 
Epping ;  and  even  in  Deerfield  and  in  Meredith  there  were 
"Folsom's  mills."  in  early  times.  They  well  knew  that  the 
value  of  their  timber  lands  was  much  increased  by  erecting 
mills,  where  the  heavy  timber  could  be  cut  up  into  mer- 
chantable lumber,  as  it  was  needed  and  ordered. 

Of  the  great  number  who  removed  into  the  Province  of 
Maine,  soon  after  the  Revolutionar}^  war,  many  engaged,  at 
least  for  a  portion  of  the  year,  in  the  lumber  business,  buying 
timber  lands,  and  spending  much  of  the  winter  in  cutting  and 
hauling  logs  to  the  mills,  or  to  the  streams  where  they  could 
be  floated  to  the  mills,  or  working  in  the  mills.  As  the  fami- 
lies of  the  men  employed  in  this  business  must  have  provisions. 


&c.,    stores    were    opened    near    the    mills,    and    the    Folsoms 
became  merchants,  and  sometimes  inn-keepers. 

Though  many  of  the  family  became  pi-eachers,  and  some 
doctors,  lawyers,  judges,  &c.,  not  many,  in  proportion  to 
the  whole  number,  have  graduated  at  our  colleges  and  theologi- 
cal seminaries. 

3.  The  Folsom  family  have  had  a  decided  inclination  to 
engage  in  military  affairs.  The  emigrant,  John^,  was  an  officer, 
and  the  records  of  his  descendants  are  thickly  sprinkled  with 
military  titles.  In  this  they  resembled  their  relatives,  the  Gil- 
mans,  who  were  prominent  as  military  men.  They  were  always 
ready  to  stand  in  the  front  ranks,  as  the  settlements  advanced 
into  the  wilderness.  One  son  of  John^,  Ephraim^,  was  killed 
by  the  Indians  at  Newfields  (South  Newmarket),  and  Nathan- 
iel^, a  grandson,  was  killed  at  Nottingham  :  others  suffered 
much  from  Indian  depredations.  In  every  war  from  which  the 
country  has  suffered,  this  family  has  borne  its  full  share  of  the 
toils  and  dangers  and  expenses.  They  have  not  shrank  from 
any  post  of  duty  to  which  they  have  been  called,  in  the  service 
of  their  country. 

It  is  interesting  to  notice  how  the  military  spirit  has  descend- 
ed from  father  to  son  for  generations.  A  son  of  Nathaniel^  was 
killed  in  the  Indian  war ;  his  son,  an  officer,  was  out  in  the 
French  war  ;  his  grandson  was  in  the  Revolutionary  war  ;  his 
great-grandson  in  the  war  of  1S13  ;  and  lastly,  a  descendant  of 
the  fifth  generation  was  a  soldier  in  the  tei'rible  civil  war  of 
the  Rebellion,  together  with  a  great  many  others  of  his  kin- 
dred, of  whom  not  a  few  gave  their  services  and  lost  their 
lives  in  the  defence  of  their  countrv.
